I started playing fairly recently, so hitting 70 has been pretty daunting. I hit 70 a few days ago, and since then I've already been insulted by a groupmate for having some green items thrown in with my other hard-earned honor PVP items (i was told that I should have stayed at level 69 until I had full 300 resilience when i hit 70 .. this was in an instance context, by the way, so wtf) , and it feels like the gear gap, if I wanted to try raiding, is insurmountable at this point. So I voted for "level 80" .. because it gives those of us that started late a chance to jump into some of the content that is currently off-limits for us. It's still tough starting a MMORPG late, and I hope that everyone who already has elite gear will be a little more open-minded and generous when it comes to newer players who may not have had the time to farm 200k honor before hitting 70.

If you think now is hard, Vanilla WoW was much harder. There was really no casual epics, not a lot for the casual player. Entry raid was Molten Core/Onyxia - both 40 man raids, now we have Karazhan, dailies, rep etc to get gear. It's still daunting now, but we've come quite a way. Expect it to be better in Wrath too.

Yeah, I realize it's a lot better with all the PVP epics. It still takes time, though, and I realize that assholes will be assholes no matter what. If there were no PVP epics, starting out as a new 70 right now would be really tough. as it is, the blue PVP set from being honored at thrallmar, sha'tar, Lower City, etc. was really great for an immediate upgrade at 70 + spending my honor on weapons and such.
